A Super 20 w/silver bell and neck, with the gold wash in the bell intact is one of the best-looking saxes ever made.

Unfortunately I can't play anything but Selmers/clones now everything else feels funny. But my very first tenor was a used early Super 20 (silver neck, full pearls, all bow/bell keys engraved) that I got for Christmas at age 16. My Mom got it at a pawn shop for $90 - hey, it was 1961! What would I give to have that one back. I had an older mentor at the time who gave me a 90/2 metal Berg that had been messed-with. It was a real good combo with the Super 20. He also drilled into my head the study/practice of chords, which was one of the most important things anybody ever taught me on sax. Many years later I bought a Super 20 on ebay but it was a mistake - you can't go home. It is what it is. But, I'm happy with my tenors now.
